WOYWW 236 & Houses!

What day is it?

It's show n tell day!

Wednesday, the day we show our desks and tell all. Thanks to Mrs. Dunnit who started this little get together a wee bit ago. Do join in and meet some lovely talented folks and see some very interesting desks. ;)

Now I know you're all anxiously waiting saying come on girl get to it...show us those houses! Well, here they are waiting patiently on my desk for their display cases to be finished. Yes, that's right, they'll be put in clear boxes for display. I didn't make the little box houses just their fronts (issues with my hands n all). And they're probably not the Christmas village you might of been expecting either..... big grin!

I've made ..... Steampunk Xmas Houses!

























Hope y'all like my steampunk village. So there's display boxes and two more trees to finish. Might get done before the big day.

Sending Happy Holiday greetings to all!

  3. These are far more dimensional than I first imagined. Thanks for sharing these houses (you KNOW I love houses) and the steampunk designs you added to them. They are great.

    I fear I didn't explain what a tip-in is. It's an old bookmaking term for a page you add to (in this case an altered) book. To add it to your book, you cut two adjacent pages the length of the page about 1/2 inch away from the spine. This is also one of the ways you can remove pages (and excess bulk) from a book you want to alter. Next, add glue or tape to both inner sides of the flaps, then insert the page between the two flaps. Close flaps and make sure you have good coverage of your glue or tape.

    So, no, these are not those boards you cut apart, but complete pages. I hope I explained it this time. If not, please ask further.

    Have a great WOYWW from #1.

  16. Wonderful in every way, Nan!! OMG, they are so delightful up close, especially that awesome tree!! You could hire these out to film makers who film miniatures to look like life-size buildings. Well done!! Happy WOYWW! Thanks for the visit to me! Have a great week!! Hugs, Darnell #22

  21. I bought PanPastels at scrapbooking warehouse.com. The 10 pc set for Susan's Gardens flowers was $45.88 instead of 67.49. I thought it was quite a bargain!

  27. Wow, I love these houses!! Especially the one that looks like a pine cone - or at least when I first saw it I thought - a pile of crisps (you can see where my mind lays!!) Love them. Have a great week. Helen 24
